Positive Education classes at Timbertop are taught throughout the year to all Year 9 students. The scope and sequence of the subject scaffolds the ten Resilience skills with the six pillars for living a Flourishing life. These founding principles are: Positive Purpose, Positive Emotions, Positive Accomplishment, Positive Health, Positive Relationships, and Positive Meaning. Students discover their Character Strengths that they most frequently use which in turn increases their self-awareness. Students also focus on the skills necessary to improve some or all of the resilience competencies. Students gain a conceptual understanding in these classes, but importantly practise the application of these skills with their Unit and Head of Unit during Pastoral Positive Education sessions.

This is not a formally assessed subject and there is no official written report.
